Not a soul seems to care
The stars in the sky look like teardrops because I've been crying
And the breeze seems to sigh as I whisper my penance in prayer

You shouldn't have lied now
You shouldn't have lied

Now it's a restless, hungry feeling
That don't mean no one no good
Yes, when anything that I'm sayin'
You could say it just as good

Gonna find somebody who's twice as cute
'Cause I didn't like you anyhow

My darling I need you
To call my own and never do wrong

And I wonder if you'll always
Always always be blue
Or someday you will find
Someone who loves you

Somewhere there's a church with a great, tall steeple
Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar

When my memories wander away over yonder
To the sweetheart that I left behind
In the moment of glory
A face comes before me

I said I'd laugh when you left me
Pull a funny as you went out the door

And every night we'll have a dance
'Cause what's a vacation without romance
Oh man this jive has me in a trance

I met her just a year ago
My love for her will grow and grow
Her bright eyes make a fire in me
I cannot live

Now that I'm a grown man
I've traveled here and there
I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song
The only ones who ever care

Why did you say goodbye to me
Now I'm as lonely as can be
And as I feel a teardrop fall

I was a fool to fall and get that way
I should have known the price I`d have to pay

You can say that you're leading me on
But it's just what I want you to do
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm following you

I'm gonna run my fingers through your long black hair
Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear, uh-huh, yessiree

Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone

There on the brink of love I kissed her
And obeyed our hearts' command

Soft kisses on a summer day
Laughing all our cares away
Just you and I

I've fooled myself as long as I can
I can feel the presence of another man

Your eyes hold a dream of a love for two
A love so warm and rare
I hope to see that dream come true
A dream we both can share

I always get what I aim for
And your heart and soul is what I came for

They say that you're a runaround lover
Though you say it isn't so

Won't you guide us (guide us)
And protect us (protect us)
Through the years that lie ahead
Won't you fill our hearts with sunshine
On the day that we are wed


If I were you, I'd realize that I love you more
Than any other guy
And I'll forgive the lies that I heard before

Three nights and days me sail the sea
Me think of girl, ooh, constantly
On the ship, I dream she there
I smell the rose in her hair

Bonus question

Name the song and artist for the following set of lyrics, and describe what
is unique about the lyrics.

    Now the years are rollin' by me
    They are rockin' evenly
    I am older than I once was
    And younger than I'll be
    But that's not unusual
    No, it isn't strange
    After changes upon changes
    We are more or less the same
    After changes we are more or less the same
